West Indies choose to field in T20 against India

India posted a challenging total of 190/6 in the one-off Twenty20 global against West Indies at the Sabina Park here on Sunday.

The India vs West Indies 2017 T20 match can be enjoyed by broadcast LIVE online on SonyLIV.com and TV Coverage on Sony Six, Sony Six HD, Ten 1 HD and Ten 3.

In August a year ago, the opener smashed 100 from 49 balls as Windies won a remarkable clash, just about defending 245 to win by a single run. Windies are the World Champs for a reason. Both teams have played 7 T20 matches so far and West Indies have lost just two. The guys have played in the IPL, so everyone have a lot of exposure.

IST: West Indies win toss, opt to bowl.

"Five games in a row, in the ODIs, I didn't do well but I kept believing in my ability and today I came out trumps", Lewis said, referring to his slim pickings in the one-day global series that preceded the one-off T20.

The results of the match would also affect the ICC T20 team rankings and if India lose then West Indies will replace them at no. 4 but if win they will remain unchanged.

This match will be a tough match for Indian Team because this time Gayle joined the T20 team and they equally balanced to our Indian team. However, the bowling section below the likes of qualified pacer Jerome Taylor and turning pair Samuel Badree and Sunil Narine will look to put the constraints on the hard Indian striking array.

On the other hand, the Indian batting line with the likes of Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli, Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Yuvraj Singh will look to help their side put up a big total keeping in mind the visitors' strength in batting. They have made quite a few changes in their starting XI.

Gayle, in his first appearance for West Indies since they won the World Twenty20 15 months ago, compiled a relatively subdued 18 off 20 balls, while Marlon Samuels chipped in with 36 not out.
